The new Radeon VII 50th Anniversary Edition graphics card looks awesomely mean with a totally red shroud versus the silver-themed shroud on the normal Radeon VII graphics card. The all-red look is great on the Radeon VII, and feels more Team Red than most releases in the last decade from the team that is now Radeon Technologies Group. The Radeon VII 50th Anniversary Edition is identical to the normal Radeon VII under the hood, with no GPU or HBM2 clock speed changes.

On the CPU side of the 50th anniverary hardware we have the Ryzen 7 2700X 50th Anniversary Edition processor that sports a laser engraved signature by Dr. Lisa Su, the President and CEO of AMD. The signature is engraved onto the IHS so you wouldn't want to install a cooler onto it, and would more than likely buy it as a collector's piece.

AMD is also giving Gold Edition AMD Ryzen CPU and AMD Radeon graphics card owners between April 29 and June 8 the AMD50 Game Bundle. This bundle includes a digital code to World War Z, and a code for The Division 2 Gold Edition (which is then bundled with the Year 1 Season Pass) as well as an exclusive AMD50 in-game armband.

Better yet, AMD is throwing in a 'tribute T-shirt' and Lisa Su-autographed sticker with any Gold Edition AMD Ryzen or Radeon product.

The Ryzen 7 2700X 50th Anniversary Edition processor will cost $329 while the Radeon VII 50th Anniversary Edition graphics card retails for $699. You'll be able to buy them on May 1.
